neuroscience, genomics, and technology

How does the genome build the brain? Can the genome be used as a molecular tool to study brain development directly in humans? What are the origins of brain tumors? And can newly developed genomics technologies be deployed more rapidly and reliably in clinical medicine?

Our mission is to develop foundational new technologies for neuroscience and human genetics that will advance our understanding of diseases of the brain. We also aim to accelerate the implementation of genomics in clinical medicine, especially for children with rare undiagnosed diseases.
